A new webinar series sponsored by SAGE Publishing – the parent of Social Science Space and Business and Management INK – features business and management academics addressing “Teaching Business for People and the Planet.”
In this first episode, Oliver Laasch, a senior lecturer in entrepreneurship and innovation at the University of Manchester, will consider the opportunities of reinventing management in a responsible way and teaching students to shift “from doing more to doing better.” His webinar, “Reinventing management the responsible way,” will explore how after a year of unforeseen crises, the business world has rapidly changed and is increasingly advocating for the needs of society and the environment. How will these changes impact teaching in business and management? How can we use this as an opportunity to stop and rethink?
Laasch will also showcase key findings from his most recent book for SAGE, Principles of Management: Practicing Ethics, Responsibility, Sustainability. Earlier this year, Laasch discussed that book and his guiding principles with Business and Management INK in a post titled “Let’s Incite Subversively Responsible Management Practices!”
In addition to his post at Manchester, Laasch is an adjunct associate professor of strategy at the University of Nottingham Ningbo China. He is a long-standing contributor to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Management Education initiative and founder of the Center for Responsible Management Education.
The debut webinar takes place on Thursday, June 10, starting at 11 a.m. BT/6 a.m. ET. There is no cost to attend, but pre-registration is requested. To register, click the button below.
